Regional identity

The UK is not monochrome. Each region has its own culture, eccentricities, blessings and challenges.

Regional identity primary image

FIEC is a national family with affiliated churches from every constituent part of the United Kingdom, as well as some ex-patriot churches overseas. We recognise that there are strong regional cultural identities across the UK, and so our churches belong to regional groups which are able to reflect the specific needs of their location.

There are regional groups in all areas of England and we are working to develop a vibrant FIEC Scotland and FIEC Wales.

If you would like to find out more about FIEC in your area of England please contact Richard Underwood (Pastoral Director) using the contact form. We can also put you in contact with those who are connecting churches in Scotland and Wales.

    Evangelical issues

    We are very aware that FIEC is not the only group of evangelical churches in the UK, and that our nation will not be reached for Christ by any single family of churches alone. We highly value good working relationships with other evangelicals who share our gospel convictions.

    Public engagement

    We are determined to protect the liberties of our churches to preach the gospel and practice their faith in the public sphere.
